Desert Bloom

THE SHELTERING SKY from Arrow is the latest Blu-ray to feature a video essay by Fiona and I, with Stephen C, Horne editing. A fascinating and challenging film to write about. Lost in Transit covers Vittorio Storaro’s highly personal colour theories, book v. film, the positioning of TSS in Bertolucci’s career, and much, much more.

I hope you’ll buy — but I also and even more so hope you’ll buy my novel, We Used Dark Forces, available at Amazon US and UK and you can also read it on Kindle Unlimited and I get paid by the page, like Henry Miller doing his Parisian porn.

I could never be bothered with a Patreon page but buying the book is a way of supporting Shadowplay but it’s not just a donation — you get 250+ pages of hand-curated words in the form of a funny story with the continuation of characters created in my short film THE NORTHLEACH HORROR. So you can treat it as a book or as a means of tipping for the daily content here.
